What length would you consider micro skagit and thanks!With "skagit casting", the tip is assumed to be anchored IN the water, thus the tip is not included in weight.
Example: A rod with skagit rating of 480-560 would take a skagit head within that range.
With tiny micro skagits, the rules seem to change, but I don't use those much.
In thinking about a 'continual motion cast', it seems to me that a great deal more of the line is in play than in a static cast, so the load is the total of the moving line and might actually be greater than the load in the static loop of a heavier line. Say 40' of moving 3g/ft line (120g) as opposed to 20' of static 5g/ft line (100g).In a continual motion cast it is the motion and tension of the cast that effects how the rod loads, which requires less weight.
